12 Songs, 36 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Released four months after the controversial Self Portrait, this 1970 album represents a return to a Bob Dylan that audiences had grown comfortable with. Patched together from several recording sessions, the album’s a testament to Dylan’s artistry that even with no consistent producer or backing band he can weave a coherent, touching vision. The songs range from the sweet, ramshackle pop of “If Not for You” to the rambling piano and organ of the scathing “Day of the Locusts” to the mounting title track, a salute to love and redemption.
